To think Machamp seemed so easy in the beginning. "Oh just shoot him and you'll be fine". Then he gets a knockdown and all that is left is fear in your eyes.

It's funny how Suicune players think that Machamp is a bad MU while Machamp players think that Suicune is a bad MU for them ?.

 

Imo, it's not that bad for Suicune. Machamp still has a really hard time getting in and most of the time they have to CADC. Suicune's 2X is a great tool to punish Machamp's CA and to shut him down in general. You gotta be aware of Submission though, since you can't low stance it.

 

It's a MU that requires a lot of patience and fast reactions to avoid stuff like 5X, [X] cancels or Submission cancel > BA. 

 

That being said, I don't think that Machamp is one of the worst MUs for Suicune. It's definitely not easy but still doable.

I believe Machamp is rough for Suicune. Because of high health/shield health, Machamp shouldn't really have much problems getting in, especially if they use Whimsicott. 2x is a great low stance tool to stuff counters with. If you do it too early, the can cadc and grab punish. I agree with Submission, it is tough and can be used as a great punish tool. Another thing that makes the match up on the difficult side is field phase, which is very critical. You have to wait for them to do something unsafe and punish, or force RPS. They can avoid all projectiles as well as getting rid of them. If they win field phase, you are defending after the transition.
